't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the last time and the time before that scott hit it right between the eyes. >> no, i know scott quite w
, probably voted for obama four years ago and are not sure now, i think this could help. >> how many do you think there are? >> standing next to chris christie helps. >> -- in cincinnati or waukesha, wisconsin -- >> it helps with the media though. it helps with our point of view. let me ask you, everybody goes by the polls and they tend to be 47/47 which means six people haven't made up their mind. i'm asking you as a pro. aren't there a lot of people who are more like the group you described, voted for obama one, worried about him this time may go with the other guy if he has a good night. can they come back from the first debate saying i'm back where i was? how many of them are there potentially? >> i think there are some out there. but the question is how many of them have early voted? the proliferation of early voting, there were some voting after the first debate, between the second and third debate. i think there are some of those who are not sure and have been looking for a sign. if you haven't voted sort of right away, i think there are some people who are holding up until this fina
-important swing states today. all these polls are just released today. in colorado president obama up by four. in iowa, president obama up by four. in wisconsin president obama up by seven points. in new hampshire the president leading in six points. in ohio president obama leading by two points in one poll and by three points in another poll. in virginia president obama leading by one point. in florida president obama leading by two points. one state that's not a swing state this year but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the republican candidate in indiana ended up being the guy on the left side of your screen richard mourdock. he's up against a centrist moderate democrat named joe donnelly, the guy on the right side of your screen. since mr. mourdock said
happens. but we've been living under barack obama for four years. americans know exactly the impact his policies have had. enormously challenging. and what mitt romney is offering them is a break from the status quo. not four more years, but four years of promises of new jobs and a fresh start for millions of americans, a brighter future for their children. it's a clear choice here, and i don't think three days of us being worried and praying for the victims of this storm are going to change four years of barack obama. >> what about, though, then just the bottom line here, which is the pass of 270 in ohio is difficult. polls haven't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but florida, ohio, virginia. ohio, 50% for the president, 45% for mitt romney. that's outside the margin of error. >> other polls show it very close within the margin of error. i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. but i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now. with just a few days left, and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47, 48, has been for what, the better of two
there. the virginia "washington post" poll has obama hanging onto the four-point lead and philadelphia enquirer, 49/42. two different polls here. minnesota is truly a 50/50 race right now. is that going to impact everything like doug is saying? they can't get accurate figures to know where they're up or down? >> it may. even though one of the super-pacs supporting romney is now advertising in pennsylvania trying to expand the map a little bit, we're not going to likely see mitt romney go to places like minnesota or pennsylvania. they're really going to double-down on about seven swing states, and he's right that we won't be able to see what's going to happen over the next week because the polling is going to be fairly messed up. so we're just going to have to wait and see, thomas. i think the obama campaign feels that they are ahead in the states that motor like ohio and wisconsin and nevada. so as far as it's concerned right now, mitt romney has to go to those states and hang out there until election day. >> iowa came out over the weekend, "the des moines register" it to endorse mitt
in the last four days of the break. today is the first day. president obama spends the entire day in ohio. he's got stops in springfield, lima, hilliard in franklin county which has voted for democrats in the last three elections but his other two stops are in counties which voted for mccain in 2008. after a morning rally in wisconsin romney is also in ohio today. in aetna and westchester both counties that voted republican the last three elections. you look at the president's campaign schedule and it makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for airforce one with ohio stops every day through the election. colorado, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio,
is not measured in words. real change is measured in achievements and four years ago candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he has fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he would focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare. [booing] he said he would lower health insurance premiums for the average family. by $2500 a year by now. actually by now they are now 3,000 higher for an aver
president obama with a late endorsement thursday. he is saying though he found the past four years to be, quote, disappointing, the storm's devastation brought the stakes of tuesday's election, he says, into sharp relief. he then tweeted this, quote. this november vote for a president who will lead on climate change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided ove
at the obama rallies they're shouting four more years, four more years. i just heard you, we're shouting four more days, all right? [applause] we're so very grateful to you and to people frankly across the country for all that you've done, for all they have done to give yourselves to this campaign. as you know this is not just about paul and me. this is about america. it is about the future we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask you to stay at it all the way to the finish line because we're going to win on tuesday night. [cheers and applause] you know the closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic all their own. a lot of voters have known for some time who they were going to vote for but there are others just now putting aside the demands of their daily life and considering how their vote will affect their own life, the life of their children, and of course the course of the country that we love. and we asked them and you, to look beyond the speeches, and the attacks and the ads, look to the record, to the accomplishments and the failures, and the judgements. words are
. >> obama has had four years and really has not come up with anything to show the people that he did better than before, than the administration we had before, so i figure it is time for a change. >> if the majority of retirees share this view on election day, romney may take florida, an important part of winning the election. >> in a minute, we will look at unemployment in europe. >> first, other stories making headlines around the world. >> tensions are high in the tunisian capital after clashes between police and salafist muslims left italy will people dead. >> russia has launched a rocket from the steppes of kazakhstan, headed for the international space station. the rocket is carrying a spacecraft loaded with supplies including hardware, fuel, and water. >> following the resignation of former german president christian wulff, opposition leaders are calling for new rules on the president's salary. they say presidents should no longer be entitled to full salary for the rest of their lives if they leave office prematurely. >> eurozone economies are still struggling to pick up steam, and n
four years, the next eight years, and president obama has not articulated a new vision. i think most pennsylvanians, republicans, democrats, independents no well enough four more years like the past four years we'll not get out of this mess. the economy still drives i think this election. that is what i think the polls demonstrate, that people look to a governor romney, a president romney to help us work our way through the past four years and he will did do it and i think they win pa. bill: you do? i want to come back to my question because the way you're answering that sounded like a maybe not a yes or a no. you are saying you think romney wins your state? >> yes i will go on record, it will be close, very, very close. as i said before we had more voter contacts. there is more enthusiasm there. a republican truly doesn't get elected because if there are not a lot of independent thinking democrats and independents. governor romney's message is so strong it will rule the day in pennsylvania. bill: 30 seconds left, the suburbs of philadelphia, does counties surround philadelphia are c
this is a perfect reason to show it again. this is abigail evans. she's tired of barack obama and mitt romney. four years old, in tears. >> i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> we spoke to abigail's mom, liz. they told us they don't even have a television. she's upset about the radio. >> she's a swing state. >> the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >>> taking a leap of faith. ♪ >> tacos, delicious food. >> thumbs up for me. >> canons can be fun in the right setting. why not combine the two? >> taco cannon? >> this is in austin, texas, and if you look right over here, there's a guy with a taco cannon shooting tacos into this crowd of people. they scramble for a taco that are, of course, wrapped up. what better way to have fun? >> better be really good taco. >> i don't care if it's a mediocre ta mediocre taco. >> baseball games, they shoot the hotdogs. they do this for fun. get free tacos shot at your face. >> that's literally getting your product out there. >> i'm surprised no injuries. >> funny if they shot the tacos, then the hot sauce. next time you're in austin, check it out.
. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock because of it. president obama promised to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada, in countries that have made themselves more attractive while obama's policies have made it less attractiv
and so everyday we have these headlines...oh romney's up two points, oh obama's up four points...and so that's what we call the horse race." dr. melinda jackson says that these numbers aren't the ones that matter. she says that experts really trying to predict the eventual winner...focus on the electoral college. san jose state is offering a convienient way for students to cast their ballots. three drop off ballot boxes have been set up on campus. the boxes are on the second floor of joe west hall, in the martin luther king library by the childrens center and by the associated students house. but not all students think the boxes are a good idea. ">>>natally acosta rtvf: if you choose to mail in your ballot in a traditional mail box...remember it must have a 45 cents postal stamp coming up on update news we'll show you a little-known costume shop on campus ... with thousands of get-ups for every occasion. and we'll show you where you can go to get the new i-pad mini ... and avoid long lines at the apple store. but first we ask students what their costumes will be for halloween. ">>>i'm g
for on election day. i'm call it o-win. in order for president obama to win he needs four states other than the ones he has locked up already. that's o for ohio, and right now election of polls at "huffington post" is looking at, not just one poll but a collection. 48.4%-45.7% lead for president obama. the likelihood that president obama has an actual lead based on the polls is 97%. that doesn't mean that he has a 97% chance of winning ohio. it just means that he has 97% of leading today in ohio. now wisconsin 49.8%-46.0%. probability of the lead today is 98.5%. then you go to i had iowa. another somewhat comfortable lead for president obama. probability of his lead is 95.3%. and then in nevada, 49.7%-46.4%, and again 98.1% chance that he actually has got the lead in that state. when you look at 95% and above in the four states that he absolutely has to win--he could lose every other state, florida, virginia, all the other swing states, north carolina, he still gets 277 electoral votes and continues to be president of the united states. so as we get all those national polls that make people
, -- >> this is an advantage to getting obama in, it's a four year stretch, and opposed to romney who could run 8 years, and that would delay andrew. >> are you yefiguring -- >> andrew versus christie. >> let's >> the home stretch, american presidential race is undecided, not by the popular vote, or even by who wins a majority of states, but by who wins a majority of the electrical college votes, within those states. it takes 270 to win. the votes are's portioned by population, and the rules are winner take all. whoever wins the most popular votes in a given states wins all of that state's electrical votes. question: how many states are in play that can go either way? >> depending on how you count it, between 8 and a dozen, that are sitting on the fence, and, funny thing is, the polling has been varied, but romn has been strong overall, but obama strong in the states that count. that's where there is thero possibility there could be one winner of the most votes while the other gets the electrical. >> what are the battleground states? >> romney has about 191 locked up, he has to win florida, north caro
. the president won the state in 2008 but now the republican candidate hopes to turn it red again. >> the obama folks are chanting four more years, but our chant is this, five more days. five more days. >> reporter: the latest poll in virginia shows it's to close to call. obama leads 49-47%. with in the margin of error. >> hello wisconsin. >> reporter: the president started his three state swing in paul ryan's home state where he asked for more time to finish the job. >> as long as there is a single american who wants a job but can't find one our work isn't done. >> reporter: rounding out his day campaign stops in nevada and colorado. it combined 15elect, roal votes. the running mates also out in full force. four campaign events between the two. in iowa, the vice president accused the romney campaign of flip-flopping. > >> they are shameless. >> reporter: in colorado paul ryan argued the obama policies aren't working >> reporter: over the next several days you can expect to see more events just like those in the remaining swing states. also though don't be surprise fire department the campai
. >> there is no question in my view, we can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chance is five more day, five more days, that's our chant. let me ask you a question. can anybody name our current secretary of commerce? you know why? we don't have one. it's been vacant four months and the president hasn't proposed to put somebody in the job. we need another president! >> in the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all of his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after the past four years. and he's offering them up as change. >> here's my last question: are you ready for this? are you fired up? are you ready to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of t
to status quo versus change. four years ago broke -- barack obama was the change guy. how does that boil down in the next two weeks? molly? >> they just keep having the argument. gwen: really? oh, good. oh, joy. >> anything new at this stage? that's dangerous. >> i think you see romney focusing more on the personal and likability. he passed the debate test. he proved himself a viable alternative and now it comes down to this likable factor. every pom i've ever seen, obama has this, you may not approve of him but like him. i don't think mitt romney has that. >> i think it comes down to voter enthusiasm and getting your people out. gwen: and sometimes scaring them. look what might happen? >> exactly. >> well, thank you. still counting down. we'll keep chath away on line on the "washington week" webcast extra. you can find than at pbs.org/washingtonweek. before we go tonight, we'd like to send our condolences to the family of former senator, presidential candidate, and humanitarian george mcgovern. he passed away this week at age 90. keep up with daily developments in this too close to gues
. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continue the court's conservative shift and threaten abortion rights, search and seizure protections and other individual liberties." this year's presidential endorsement of mitt romney does not mention the supreme court. exactly the same paragraph could have been written in this year's editorial about the supreme court and they just have to substitute the word romney for the word mccain, but "the des moines register" editorial board no longer cares. they don't care about the united state supreme court. the number one reason to vote for president. that's how much they've rewritten their criteria for presidential endorsements in four years. can you imagine what that vigorous debate was like among the five people in "the des moines register" editorial board? you know someone in that room was just sitting there say
" rewrite its endorsement of an obama presidency four years ago into an endorsement of a romney presidency now? by magical thinking. by adopting mitt romney's magical thinking. after saying, quote, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short, the editorial then says that the problem with the economy is the consumers have to feel more confident, and without giving a single shred of evidence as to why consumers would feel more confident with a romney presidency, the editorial board simply believes it will happen. that's it. it will happen like magic. consumers must feel more confident about their own economic futures to begin spending on the products and services that power the economy. a renewed sense of confidence will spark renewed investment by american companies. industry will return to full production, and hiring will begin again." that is the entire case for romney. pure magical thinking that the very sight of mitt romney taking the oath of office will suddenly make consumers run out to best buy and load up on tvs made in japan. "the des moines
they're deciding to knock on and why, who they are calling and how. obama built a very formidable organization four years ago. he's continued to build on that using very advanced data targeting techniques, really picking up where karl rove left off in 2004. republicans have made a lot of progress since then but most of the people who watched this objectively say they're not in the same league. >> it is such a science at this point and don't forget the republicans had to go through a primary. while the republicans were going through their primaries, the democrats were signing up voters, registering voters, figuring out how to get them out. that's why you see in the state of ohio, for example, even the polls -- though polls are a handful apart with the president in the lead, the organization in the state of ohio for the democratic party is unbelievable. . question is who do you actually get to vote early? you have to be careful. you don't caine allies your voters who are going to go out -- gwen: eight million people voted early. >> right. you need to get -- get those voters they cal
't have four more years like the last 4 years, i know the obama folks are chanting 4 more years, four more years but or chant is this, five more days, five more days is our chant. >> just about an hour ago mitt romney held a rally in roanoke, virginia, romney once again asked supporters to donate to the red cross to help the storm victims but he quickly turned his sites on the election, mocking president obama for suggesting a cabinet level department of business. romney said that would not add jobs on main street. >>> many of you are doing last minute reading up on candidates in the many state and local propositions. ktvu.com can help you with that. go to the news, drop down at the top of the front page and click on politics to read or print the ballot for your county. >>> hundreds of people showed up at the san jose convention center today to take advantage of free help with their mortgage. janine de la vega explains what was being offered. >> reporter: he is a single day in danger of losing his home. he came here hoping to hang on to his. >> i just been through a divorce right now and t
, and the candidates in seven of them today alone. president obama is travelling it four states, ohio, wisconsin, iowa and virginia, governor mitt romney will be hitting three, new hampshire, iowa and ohio. and hour number two of america's news headquarters starts right now. in washington, and the second hour of america's news headquarters starts at this moment. and topping our news off right now, we're going to talk to you about the live election team coverage that we have in play with three battle ground states. ohio, virginia, and florida. steve brown is live in mansfield, ohio, peter doocy live in fairfax, virginia, and steve harrigan, tampa, florida. and steve brown in ohio, a state that many say is a must-win for either candidate. steve. >> reporter: hey there, uma, yeah, basically two, you can break ohio down into two contests, a contest that's leading up to election day and that's the early vote and there's the contest that goes on on election day and the regular voting and the early vote is the contest that's going on right now. and we're in the final hour of early voting here on saturday, i
for something different. >> i'm going to vote for romney. i'm going to get rid of obama. he's been there four years and did not do what he said he would do. this is not change. this is the same old thing. >> dean thinks president obama has led the country down the wrong path. he is not alone. louisiana has voted republican for decades. aaron is an environmental activist. louisiana is home to almost half of the nation's wetlands, but they are being destroyed by canals built to serve as oil and gas wells. >> not enough people care. not enough people are demanding action from politicians. not enough people are demanding changes to where we get our energy from. that's one of our largest challenges. >> since 2005, over 340 square miles of wetlands around new orleans have vanished. experts believe this played a major role in the devastation of hurricane katrina. they warn of more disasters ahead due to climate change, but that was not a subject during the presidential debates. >> the no one talked about climate change. we had three debates and not a single mention of climate change. the first time

've talked to say barack obama has been our single most effective recruiting tool in the last four, five years. >> well, i think there's some truth to that. immediately after obama was elected, we saw two of the largest hate websites in the country crash. >> reporter: potok told us that by the late '80s, the klan dwindled to a few hundred. they now number closer to 6,000. >> white power! >> reporter: he believes they can be very dangerous. >> it's dangerous, not so much because a whole bunch of klansmen get together in a room and plan to murder 1,000 people with a bomb so, you know, it's the lone wolf characters that get frustrated with their leaders that break away, you know, one day, walk out of their house and start shooting. >> reporter: with that in mind, at a gas station outside of tupelo, the grand dragon appears. he is also known as steven howard, 31 years old, he says he's an iraq war veteran. he comes with a loaded pistol on his hip and tells me he's got serious ptsd. we agree to follow him to a remote location, where cell phone service is spotty. next to a trailer by the woods
flare ups. challenge mitt romney described what he see as how sitting president barack obama, during his four years, has conducted himself overseas. >> then the president began what i have called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they looked at that and saw a weakness. >> wait a minute, says president obama. that is bs. >> nothing governor romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing. this has been probably the biggest whopper that has been told during the course of this campaign. >> on arabic tv you said america had been dismiss i have and dericesive. you said america has dictated other nations. mr. president we have not dictated to other nations we have freed other nations from dictators. > >> who was more pug gnashes, romney or obama? >> i don't know but i thought romney won that little exchange. he came across a lot better than the president did. >> i beg to differ. this business of the apology tour is a big lie that romney has been promoting. he titled his book to that. every fact checker that loo
the past four years behind us and start building a new future. >> and barack obama looking presidential yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit of economic news with the jobs report, came in about 46,000 over what the consensus forecast had been. and so he's casting this as we're slowly going in the right direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied in the polls. gwen: w
because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even though they don't trust the president. >> i see these job numbers as basically being status quo. they can affect things in a big way. the decimal point kicked up one point but the actual job number was a little higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy,
find this unconsulting to many women. you know what? where is barack obama? barack obama four years ago told us he was going to change the tone and be a transcendent figure who would elevate the discourse and transsend these kinds of things. if he disagrees with the tone. let's talk about the michael moore ad and the paul ryan ad. if he disagree with tone of that, where is the condemnation. megyn: kirsten, you seat world differently when you have children i have found. and more and more i'm feeling like i'm 70 when i see these. i don't want my little girl being told by the president through the campaign about what her first time should be like. and to be making so light of it. making jokes about it. you not makes me feel uncomfortable. have i gotten that prude? >> yeah. this isn't targeting little girls it's targeted at women. megyn: but she'll be 14, and 15 and 16 some day. >> but she won't be able to vote when she is 14, 15, 16. it's a joke. megyn: all right. i'm going to call you up when she is 16 and sees this. thank you both so much. let me know your thoughts on twitter @megynkelly
to come back, see what happens out there but the key is, we've been living under barack obama for four years. americans know exactly the impact his policies have had on him, enormously challenging. and what mitt romney is offering them is a break from the status quo, not four more years but four years of promises of new jobs and a fresh start for millions of americans, a brighter future for their children, it's a clear choice here, erin, and i don't think three days of us being worried and praying for the victims of this storm are going to change four year of barack obama. >> what about, though, then just the bottom line here, which is the path to 270 without ohio is difficult but not impossible. ohio the polls haven't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but i'm looking here at florida, ohio and virginia, but look at ohio. 50 for the president, 45 for mitt romney, that's outside the margin of error. >> that's one poll. there's other polls showing it very, very close, within the margin of error. in fact i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. i'll tell you what's
that obama has had his four years, it's time for new leadership. they're both making that case and it's really about getting those voters who have made up their minds or who are really close to voting for one or the other out to the polls. >> what about the undecideds? we keep hearing about the undecide undecideds? is there a particular populace there in ohio? >> it's about 1%. >> so the northern part of that state is one that would traditionally vote more republican. it seems as though according to some of your polling and some of the articles that that is the portion of the state that is leaning toward romney. but that's also the portion of the state that's heavy on manufacturing of ships and cars, especially since obama has been getting a lot of credit for helping to save the u.s. auto industry. that doesn't seem to make sense. >> right. well, actually, the northern part, especially the northeastern part is traditionally democratic. the northwestern part has been democratic, but if you move away from toledo, it gets to be a little less. so it's consistently, really, especially nort
minutes ago. president obama hanging on to a slim four-point lead in the commonwealth over governor romney. according to the latest "washington post" poll. joining me on the state of the race. jo anne reed, managing editor of the grio who was supposed to be with us in florida. >> i'm jealous. >> the latest poll, alex. "washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the el
in deficits is caused by president obama over the last four years, and you support his policies that don't work. economy has stalled, more people unemployed than ever. the economy is not going where it needs to go so you're right, that's $16,000 of debt caused by president obama is what a strangling us today. >> you want a quick response? kind i guess amnesia is spreading all over the country. there were eight using a depressed obama and our debt when exponentially out of control. they were too unfounded wars, very expensive prescription benefit of you have chemistry your willingness to raise taxes. you want to do and county taxpayerscan you sign this pledge down to washington so this is how -- we need to look closely at trinity let's be clear. i've never called for privatizing medicare. i've never support anything in the ryan budget what you distort what i said. that's what you do, ms. hochul, you distort what people say to suit your own needs or your own purposes. what i said was the ryan budget did before enough to getting as a balanced budget the next 10 years. mitt romney agrees wit
back on the agenda. >>> i know the obama folks are chanting four more years but our cannot is this: five more days. >> reporter: as you mentioned earlier, the death totally does unfortunately continue to rise, right now, at least 157 people have died from this storm in both the caribbean and the united states. now tonight, there are still more than 3 million people without power on the east coast. kasia? >> wells fargo bank is saying that they're waving late fees for those affected by hurricane sandy. and it donates a million dollars for help with relief efforts. they can make donations to -- the bay area -- to help victims of the storm, some left this morning from january. >> say meneta airport. more than 60 volunteers deployed from the east coast. the american red cross is saying that they're helping storm victims, blood donations are up 25%. another top peen states official now faces charges linked to the childhood sexual abuse scandal. graham spanner was charged today with conspiracy, and -- prosecutors say, he and two others deliberately gave false testimony to a grand jury.
four that leadership. senator portman, what a great friend. he was playing barack obama in our debate preparation, and he was tough. i'm glad i didn't have to debate him on tv. i got to tell you. quite a guy. you got a terrific senator, and i appreciate his help. the the auditor is here somewhere. someone says he's over here. he's my chairman in the states, and he was very hard-working from the very beginning when not many people were behind me. now a lot more are behind me. i thank you. i want to thank steve cohen and the cohen family for their commitment to ohio, for their work here, for the people they employ here and for the commitment to america. thank you, steve, and thank you for your help. now, i have heard you chanting out here four more days, and you are right. there's not much time left before people make the decisions as to which way the country something to head. i think a lot of people made their mind up a long time ago who they were going to support. there are some folks who are getting ready to put aside the demands of daily living and ask themselves what's best for th
and cute and funny, a lot of people did decide to make the decision to go with barack obama four years ago, it wasn't fun like a lot of if i remember times for a lot of people and a lot of people are regretting it for four years. charles: i'm not going to ask you about your first time, nicole. >> this ad is gross, i find it to be offensive to me, as well. like she said. and i have to think about this girl being hot for obama. and sex sells for cars, sex sells for alcohol, it doesn't sell for the president of the united states. that is a higher ground, it's about the economy, it is about foreign policy, it's about jobs. it is not about sex to me, i think it's gross. charles: maybe when it's said and done, guys, that will be the-- the campaign that there is no higher ground. and for all u.s. markets may be closed, but we're open for business on "varney & company," up after the break, the latest forecast on hurricane sandy. how bad is this thing going to get and when can we expect the worst of it? that's next. are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?

] >> reporter: in new hampshire, president barack obama once again heard the four more years. [ people chanting ] and he too talked about ten more days. >> ten days and you'll be stepping into a voting booth, and making is defining choice about the future of our country. >> reporter: new hampshire is the smallest battleground state with just four electoral votes with the way the race is shaping up, those votes could make a difference. >> new hampshire, i still believe in you. i need you to keep believing in me. >> reporter: with hurricane sandy barreling towards the east coast, both have been forced to change their travel schedules. romney scrapped a sunday trip to virginia. and will instead join running mate ryan in ohio. the president has planned to leave monday for florida. that's been moved up to sunday night to beat the storm. drew levinson, cbs news. >>> here in the bay area the california democratic party kicked off a statewide day of action with a phone bank effort. they're calling voters urging them to vote yes on proposition 30 and no on proposition 32. proposition 30 is governor brow
obama's mantra four years ago but has become a legitimate debate in this campaign about who really is going to bring change to washington, who can bring change to washing tonight. the president's remarks will be streaming live on foxnews.com if you'd like to listen to them in their entirety. and we'll continue to watch the candidates, it's no accident he's in ohio. it could all come down to ohio although the romney camp says it has a back up plan that they believe is more and more viable as they inch closer to tuesday. they believe they can get mitt romney into the white house even absent ohio but they sure would like to have it. in any event i want to get back to the news now, as we mentioned a moment ago during a campaign stop this morning the president complained about a romney campaign ad that is getting a lot of attention this week. the ad says that the u.s. bailed outcries her and that chrysler is going to build jeeps in china democrats call this a flat out lie, and we did a little fact checking on both. jim angle live in washington with the facts. hey, jim. >> reporter: hell
no change over four years. president obama took office, really, at the worst possible moment in the economic crisis. the details tend to get lost in the political race. >>> thanks, scott. new this morning, the wait is over. the ipad mini hits store shelves this morning and people camped out for the new ipadre lea rele but not as many in the past. bob redell has more. >> reporter: about 50 people lined up in front of the apple store in los gatos this morning. a smaller line than the ones that have gone down the block for previous product releases. why is there not as much excitement? >> because the other tablets are available. you have the kindle and the google. >> reporter: comparable and a $329 price tag for the mini. when the doors opened at 8:00 this morning, price didn't seem to matter. the cash came out in wads. >> i have been waiting for so long to get one and everyone says get a kindle. it doesn't have the same abilities. >> reporter: the mini is half the weight of an ipad and can fit in the palm of your hand. it doesn't understand why israel had his hands full with both. >> travel si
interesting that romney campaign has taken a turn there. latest polling shows president obama up four points. jim, stay where you are. we'll get back to you. christine, i want to ask you about something jim said. it is such a hot button in this state, this idea that american companies are making vehicles in china. why don't they just make them in america and ship them over? this shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the entire auto industry. for decades and decades and decades american auto companies have made cars in the countries or the regions in which they sell them. i want to remind americans, when they buy toy oat yaz and hond yaz and hyundais and they buy nissans in america that are assembled here, back home somebody says why you shipping our jobs to america? so it really shows a fundamental, fundamental misunderstanding by romney camp to try and get under people's nails about jobs. they may make jeeps in china for the chinese audience. general motors does the same thing. this is not news. >> this shows you, ali, that auto making and making things is in the dna of modern america. it
for president obama with the election four days away. the race is close and florida and it is coming down to florida and ohio to the size of state for mitt romney path to the lead toward a college for the delicate that he needs to be elected president. heavy campaigning over the next four days expected especially in florida and ohio. we will bring more of information from bill clinton's rally for president obama. >> thank you mark. the north is still sticking picking up the pieces after sandy slammed the coastline four days ago. these are some of the latest pictures coming in. at last count about 98 people have been killed in the stung. just in the u.s. alone not including the deaths in the caribbean. new yorkers are facing on the day of power outages and crippled transportation. there's reports of fuel surges. line for gas stretch for miles in jersey. the mayor says the were hit the worst. >> what we have to do is in memory of those that we lost to make sure that we build as quickly as we can and as safely as we can and have a future for those they left behind. >> new york governor andre
president obama. after all this economic trouble, it's been a different four years and he's a different candidate this time around. >> you can't compare the enthusiasm that the obama supporters were showing then compared to now. we'll see how that translates on tuesday. thanks very much jessica yellin. once the president starts speaking we'll have live coverage of that as well. our campaign coverage continues throughout the weekend. please be sure to join us tomorrow night for a cnn special. count down to election night in america. 8:00 p.m. eastern, 5:00 p.m. pacific. anderson cooper and i will co-anchor that special. >>> it's one thing that will seal the deal for mitt romney. we have details of an internal memo that has been obtained by cnn. >> our conviction is even vonger --. syou know, i've helped a lot off people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange place. geico®. fifteen minutes could sav
campaign. >> we really can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the-- the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chant is this-- five more days. >> reporter: at a hal nevirginia, a campaign cheer was also a reminder of how little time is left. >> five more days! five more days! >> reporter: before the hurricane, romney had momentum. the race was in a dead heat, and he was tied or within striking distance in battleground states. but the storm knocked him off the front pages at a crucial time in the race. on monday and tuesday, he canceled reallies, and back on the trail yesterday in florida, he toned down his criticism of the president. today in virginia, romney was back on his economic message with sharp attacks on president obama. >> his campaign and address is all about attacking. we actually have a plan to get this economy going. we're going to put it in place to help the american people. >> reporter: now, before the storm, rom niece actually leading the president on the questions of which candidate would be a stronger leader, and which o
out one day that has obama up or down four, but taking into account early vote and vote by mail, you get a better picture for the president. when they say their state polling is better, i think that's what they mean. i am not sure about the gender gap. obama is competitive with men and struggling some with women. i think this may be an election where we have a narrower gender gap than the past. >> mike, i want to get you in on this, since we are talking about female voters, this is an a p poll from october 19 to 23, so before, a little before the last debate where among likely female voters, it is a tie between president obama, female voters, between president obama and governor romney. do you believe that? >> well, i think the only poll you can view is the one on election day. it is getting awfully late in many more states than i would have guessed a few weeks ago, so it is not only the different types of voters, it is the number of states seen a shrinking, smaller percentage. even ohio, time had it four points, cnn had it five, its state has it dead even. if you froze the race, you
a good job, and i am really looking forward to another four years of president obama. host: st. charles, missouri. dale is a democrat a calller. caller: i was born and raised a republican. after voting for presidential elections for the past 30 years as a democrat makes me a democrat. the question i have, that i would like you to address is the single-issue voters that the republicans catered to, we see numerous examples of people from texas in particular that have a belief system that is not based on facts. i am curious why the democratic party has not addressed the single issue voters. i keep asking people. what did you get for the gun issues from george bush, ronald reagan, there administrations of the congress? they cannot tell me. ditto abortion issues. ditto gay rights. there does not appear to be any better relations -- legislation that the federal level but i am aware of or that they are aware of. uhost: we will leave it there and go to victoria, a republican. caller: my thoughts are real quick, we have the right to bear arms number-one. number two, my vote lies solely on obama
working class voters and elsewhere turned on obama in four years and if they had in ohio like they have elsewhere this would be a pretty easy romney feat and obama's ahead by a few points and been a consistent leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's perform
this argument. why do you want to re-elect barack obama if they couldn't work across the aisle for four years. suddenly that talking point that argument gets stopped in its tracks by the pictures of barack obama and governor christie. and on top of that, you have him in the speech, just now, in wisconsin, going back to what is always the most effective touch stone of barack obama's rhetoric, in a moment like this, there are no republicans or democrats. it's like there is no red america, no blue america. we are all americans today. they were powerful in 2004, in 2008. to come back home to that in the closing days of the campaign is very powerful for undecided voters. >> fire the guy who is saying that. >> he also said something in there, he said you know me by now. you may not have liked everything i did in the first four years but you know who i am which is a backhanded -- i won't say compliment -- a suggestion that mitt romney is a mysterious, unknown, intangible plu plutocrat with horses that dance and he's not someone that anyone knows and should not be trusted. >> to your point we come ba
are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact is, the economy has not improved. we have averaged over 8% unemployment for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is horrible to give to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. we cannot continue on with these policies. host: one more call for you from gwen, michigan, on the independent line. victoria, you're on with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: good morning. i wanted to make clarification for a caller from earlier about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. it is not being clear enough to our voters that there is a giant difference between a priva
. the final sprint to find out who'll run the country for the next four years. president obama surveyed the damage on a 60-mile stredge of the jersey shore. >> we are here for you. we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure you get all the help you need until you rebuild. >> in such a tight race, romney couldn't afford to lose another day on the campaign trail, stopping in florida, a must-win state for hip. romney set aside his attacks and took a more subdued tone. the president gets back on track today with stops in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. >> romney will be close to roanoke this morning. 19 million people have voted so far. it appears there have been more early republican votes in colorado. john gonzales, abc 7 news. >> thanks so much, john. it is 4:37 now. we're looking at 45 degrees. >> we're hearing from the mother of anne local teenager who was killed while walking to school. what she is >> as we have shown you over the past few days, many local residents dealing with property damage from sandy. >> what is covered by insurance and wh
. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on i
's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all seg
inheriting a much better economy than president obama did four years ago. >> that's interesting, eugene. several months ago there was an article that said insiders in the obama team were mortified at the thought that if governor romney wins the white house, that he would get credit for the recovery put in place by actions and decisions made by them. >> absolutely. that's exactly what would happen. and there is nothing anybody can do about it. the sitting president is going to get credit for the good and the bad. look, governor romney promises to add 12 million jobs in his first term. most economists believe that given the direction of the recovery, if it picks up as expected, we're going the gain 12 million jobs anyhow in the next four years. so most agree that the economy is going to get better, and whoever is president is going to get the credit. >> let me talk to you a little bit about speaking of getting credit, the response to sandy. part of the president -- and gentlemen, you can all take a look, as well as folks at home. president obama went to fema and washington, d.c. this morn
